Captain Cook Studio Rental Photos and Description

Queen Studio, + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Aloha and welcome to Beth’s Hawaiian Hideaway in Captain Cook/Honaunau in South Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Our beautiful 'Plumeria Queen Suite” with shared pool is a great place for couples or anyone who would like to have a wonderful Kona, Big Island vacation rental that’s much more affordable and offers more amenities than most condos or B and B’s offer. JUST ADDED 3 stand up paddle boards and 3 kayaks free of charge.

Cook your own meals in your efficiency kitchen, BBQ on your private deck or dine out...it’s your choice. We are close to grocery stores, shopping, restaurants and many activities and a great jumping-off place for other activities around the island. This adorable and spacious (400 sq ft) studio with queen bed is open, bright and airy. The entire ocean facing wall of the Hideaway is filled with screened windows and peaceful views of the lawn, landscaping, fruit trees and the sea. Enjoy the lovely living room area with bamboo couch and chairs, satellite TV, and both indoor and outdoor dining areas. Sit under the Plumeria tree on your own private deck to enjoy watching the sun set . Sleep like a baby in the comfy Queen size bed. The suite has a private 3/4 bath with shower, complimentary robes included. You will have a separate private entrance in a beautiful residential area. We have wireless access to the internet for those who just can't leave it behind also ipod capable music players.

We have other suites and rooms available see VRBO Listing #189237 under Captain Cook

About David Stuit

Beth sitting on Seawall in Kona

David Stuit purchased this studio in 2007

Why David Stuit chose Kona Coast

My wife Beth grew up in Malibu, California and has always wanted to return to the ocean so when we visited friends here in the Spring of 2007 we both fell in love with the South Kona area and after much web looking we found this place. The rest is history

What makes this studio unique

We are very well located for those who love to snorkel and kayak and for these day trips to Volcano Park, South Point or Hilo. We are within 2 hours of any where else on the Island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful suprise we have stumbled upon. How lucky we are to have had such warm and genuine hosts. The tips you have given us have been invaluable, much prefered to any guide book. Thanks to the tree outside our door we are now certifiable star fruit addicts. Far too short, our stay with you has been a little slice of heaven for budget travelers such as our selves. We will forever remember your hideaway as the gateway to some of the world's best snorkeling..... who could forget the dolphins?!! We hope to see you again. Take Care.

An enjoyable, relaxing, and positive experience

  • 5 of 5

We were overall very pleased with the property. We have not always been so lucky, that is why I have no trouble writing a review of Dave and Beth's Hawaiian Hideaway! If it is important to you (as it is to me), the property is very clean and well stocked. I was surprised at all the details Beth has added to it, including helpful things, like chairs for the beach, ponchos for an afternoon rain, bandaids and other provisions for cuts, a thoughtful small library of interesting books and DVDs. We love to cook, and we managed to do quite a bit with the one burner and the BBQ outside, and the toaster oven. I looked forward to the delicious coffee from the french press each morning, and the peacefulness of the surroundings. My favorite time was at night when we went to sleep listening to the frogs and birds. I don't think I have ever slept so peacefully!

I also want to mention that the property is a close drive to amazing snorkeling, and we enjoyed that pursuit each morning. We also had fun with the paddle boards. Next time we will try the kayaks!

Most important, the owners, Dave and Beth, are friendly, helpful, and very easy to talk to. We really appreciated their hospitality and welcoming vibe. This is a place we would like to visit again. We already have very fond memories of our stay there. Thank you Beth and Dave!

Lovely stay in Captain Cook

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank Dave and Beth for their wonderful hospitality. We had an amazing time in Captain Cook. Dave helped us load the kayak and gave us directions to Captain Cook's monument site. We also snorkeled at two steps which we thought was one of the best snorkeling site in the state of Hawaii and it was only 5-10 minutes away, Their place is serene, relaxing and welcoming. We would definitely come back again.

Great place that helped make my vacation even better.

  • 5 of 5

Great room with plenty of amenities. The owners were great and had plenty of suggestions about what to see on the island. I didn’t use the kayaks or standup paddleboards, but it was nice to have the option. If you’re looking for something away from Kona this is the spot.

Beautiful and relaxing vacation home base

  • 5 of 5

We had the best stay at Dave and Beth's amazing Hideaway! Their property is absolutely gorgeous-- tucked back, lush, with a lovely ocean view and sweet pup. The space is so comfortable, super super well appointed with everything you could need, and with a sweet vintage Hawaiiana vibe we just loved. Plenty of space to cook, dine, relax, snooze-- we loved just hanging in the great space when we weren't out and about and enjoying breakfast on the lanai (best papayas we have ever eaten!). Awesome snorkeling, kayaking, and swimming is 5 mins away, and a bunch of great cafes and restaurants are all within easy reach (try Manago)! Using the awesome toys (kayaks snorkel gear etc) they share w guests makes the whole experience truly one of the best vacations we have had and makes the rental a great value. Thank you so much Dave and Beth-- we so hope we can come back!

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed yet another stay in the Plumeria Suite. We adore the space, the location, the amenities, and most of all the owners, Dave and Beth. This was our 6th or 7th stay in the suite - it's as comfortable to us as going to our second home (but we don't have to pay for upkeep!). One of our favorite features is that it's about 3 minutes away from our favorite snorkel beach, Two Step (Honaunau), where we snorkel every day we are there. The space is secluded and understated - not for people who like the resort feel. We can't wait to visit again!
